The Greater Metropolitan Association of REALTORS® (GMAR), the premier board of REALTORS® in Southeast Michigan, assisted the REALTOR® Scholarship Fund in awarding 39 Scholarships to local high school graduates. Nearly 100 students and guests attended the awards ceremony held on Tuesday, May 10, where students received certificates and warm handshakes from the REALTOR® Scholarship Fund Trustees as their supporters applauded.
Founded in 1973, the REALTOR® Scholarship Fund provides scholarships to Michigan students based on scholastic record, character, community service, work record, and financial need. Awards are made from the annual contributions of the REALTOR® community. Since 1983, the volunteer-based Board of Trustees has interviewed and awarded over 1,000 scholarships to students entering college.
